Summary This atlas deals with the standard technique used for reconstructing the mandible and the maxilla - the fibula flap. The reader will find useful information on all issues that are important in the surgical procedure, including the use of CAD-CAM technology (Computer Assisted Technology), bone synthesis and flap modelling. The editors draw on their 30 years of experience to provide a step-by-step description of this surgical procedure. With the help of numerous illustrations, the reader will learn the technical, functional and aesthetic developments since 1989 when this technique was first described. Plastic surgeons, otorhinolaryngologists and oral- and maxillofacial surgeons will find this book a valuable guide to the sophisticated principles of jaw reconstruction and how to apply them in their everyday practice
